Liza Hyatt: Poetry Reading/Workshop

Event Type: Educational
Age Group(s): Adult
Date: 4/8/2015
Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Time: 8:30 PM
Description:
 As part of National Poetry Month, Liza Hyatt reads from her work "The Mother Poems," followed by a free writing workshop.

After watching her angry mother cross a parking lot with a walker, Hyatt began composing one poem followed by another. Her work accumulated into a book-length memoir of their lifelong engagement in love and battle. Despite conflicts, this mother and daughter remained bonded through a mutual love of writing, a testament to the healing and forgiveness that writing about relationships gives when we dig deep and speak openly about our lives.

A workshop follows the reading for those who want to stay and write about their own parents. Hyatt will provide paper. Participants can bring a personal journal if it will help with their reflections. Journals will not be read aloud.

Hyatt has authored several poetry volumes including "Stories Made of World" and "Under My Skin." She also specializes in art psychotherapy for individuals recovering from complex trauma.
